Going Green #31 - September 2019

Welcome to Going Green. This is the place to promote all your green, sustainable, environmental, seasonal, local, organic, fair trade, ethical etc posts ... basically any post that helps or inspires readers to preserve and improve our beautiful world. If you are not sure what subjects would be good or need some ideas have a look here where you'll find all the details about the linky here: Going Green Linky.

Hello Autumn

Gosh, September already and we are heading into the final third of a year that has seen a definite rise in environmental awareness.  We need to keep the momentum going so maybe you would like to join in some of the events taking place this month or spread the word so others know about them:

  • International Coastal Clean Up Day is organised by the Ocean Conservancy and using the strap-line "Fighting for Trash Free Seas. This worldwide takes place on Sat 21st September and 2019 marks the 30th year of this event.
  • Clean Up the World Campaign is another long running event and facilitates clean up projects all around the world.  This will be its 26th year and in that time 35 million people   in 133 countries have been involved in over 49,000 clean up projects.  This year the Campaign takes place 20-22nd September.
  • And if you have children heading back to school one of my lined up posts highlights 7 ways you can make the return to school more green.  We are at a critical time where we can still make a difference to the future, the future that our children and grandchildren will have to live through.  We cannot fail them.

7 ideas for a Green Back to School

My picks from Going Green August 2019

Thank you to everyone who linked up in August - if you missed reading up on these 3 which were among my favourites:

  • If you have a young family maybe you are thinking about using cloth nappies rather than disposables. This guest post on Justine from Little Green Duckie's blog might be just what you are looking for: Parenting with Cloth Nappies.

Going Green is a subject I believe in with a passion I hope, that with your help, this little linky will go from strength to strength helping more people to realise how easy it can be to live a greener lifestyle.

Please link up to 3 posts, old or new and let's work together to spread the Going Green message.  I'd love it too if you could promote the linky on all your social media channels and among all your friends. Thank you 💚.

Before you link up may I just remind you of 3 of the "rules":

  • Link up a maximum of THREE posts - any more will be deleted (sorry)
  • Please can you include my badge (preferably) or a link back to A Green and Rosie Life.
  • This is a blog link so in order for us all to benefit please comment on a minimum of three other blogs in the link up, ideally including the one in front of you, one my host posts and at least one other ... the more you comment the more others are likely to visit your blog. 

If you share your posts using the hashtag #GoingGreen and I will RT you etc.  I will also add posts with suitable vertical pins to my Going Green Linky board on Pinterest.
